  • 1. Lh Surge Ovulation Time FrameUnderstanding Luteinizing hormonehttp://lhhormone.orgLaura asks…Is there a way to tell when implantation might start if youconceived??Trying to conceive after miscarriage, and read on another question where somebody said theystarted cramping around the time that implantation would have taken place if they conceived. Iwanna know if there is a time frame after period, LH surge, etc that you can tell whenimplantation might take place if you successfully conceived?? Thanks.Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:Implantation bleeding usually occurs about 6 days after conception, but can occur as last as 12days adter conception. Some woman dont experience this, however, until they are due to starttheir periods.Implantation bleeding doesnt always involve bleeding. The other signs can be milkd cramping,bloating, and a whitish-clear discarge, much like the discharge you get prior to ovulation.Sometimes, a woman may notice slight bleeding or spotting, usually lasting for 1-3 days, andpinkish red in color. 1/7
  • 2. Sandy asks…when do you count ovulation from in terms of pregnancy tests?on the pregnancy tests where it says you can test 7 days after ovulation, when do you countovulation from, is it the first day ovulation ocurred or is it the day inbetween or the last one orwhat? because ovulation lasts for about a week right?Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:No, ovulation does not last for a week. When you either see that you have had a temperaturedrop and then a spike from a basal body thermometer and have charted this to see that it ishappening or have gotten a positive on an ovulation test that is the the time frame of ovulation.Ovulation tests only test for the LH surge in your pee. It is the hormone that happens 12-24hours before ovulation. The only real way to track if you have ovulated is to do BBT andOvulation Prediction Testing at the same time. Once you see the spike in the BBT Chart andconfirmation with a Test Strip then you can say that that spike was the day that you Ovulated.Every day after that is 1 day past ovulation or 1 DPO.A test that claims that it can detect the pregnancy hormone seven days past ovulation sounds abit like a scam to me because the egg, if fertilized, needs at least 7 to 10 days to implant on theuterine wall. Once it implants, then you start throwing off the pregnancy hormone known asHCG or human chrionicgonadotropin. Maybe 5 days before your missed period then i’d believeit. But I wouldn’t test until the day of your period or until you miss your period by 1-2 days. 2/7
  • 3. Ruth asks…Have you had this with a Ovulation Test?I got a Clear Blue Easy ovulation kit from my doctor and I’ve started them as per instructed. (Igot put on Clomid so I know which days to take it).My question is if the indicator line is light blue but darker than yesterday does that mean yourLH is going up? I know that it’s a negative but I was wondering if this mean that my LH was onthe rise and closer to surging.Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:The LH surge is very brief and in order to detect the LH surge, you need to test at the right timeof the month – and the right time of day. The best times to test are between 11am and 3pm and5pm and 10pm. If you want to make sure that you catch your LH surge, you may want to testtwice a day, once in the earlier time frame and the other in the later time frame. Please keep inmind that while you may have the initial surge of LH earlier in the day if testing via blood tests,you will not get a positive result on the ovulation test until 4-5 hours later when the surgeactually reaches your urine. Be sure to test at the same time each day.Once the LH surge has been detected, successful fertilization is most likely to take place one tothree days following the LH surge – with peak fertility at 36 hours post-LH surge 3/7
  • 4. Linda asks…when to test after positive opk?I have finally gotten my positive opk and we had intercourse just right. How many days to I haveto wait to take a test to get an accurate result? I have always heard 14-16 days, but I have seengirls who have gotten a positive result on 10 dpo. Just wondering.Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:Ovulation Tests or Ovulation Predictor Kits allow you to predict ovulation, your most fertile timeof the month. Easy to use, these ovulation tests are excellent tools for predicting ovulation andcan greatly increase your chances of becoming pregnant. Unlike basal body temperaturecharting, ovulation tests anticipate ovulation – not just confirm that ovulation has taken place.And since ovulation occurs only once a month, and the unfertilized egg has a short 24-hourlife-span, predicting ovulation accurately is very helpful when trying to getting pregnant.Ovulation Tests MechanismOvulation tests work by detecting Luteinizing Hormone (LH). At the beginning of the menstrualcycle, the body begins to produce follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). FSH facilitates theformation of a follicle on one of the ovaries. The follicle contains and nurtures the ovum. When afollicle has adequately matured, a surge of Luteinizing Hormone (LH) causes the follicle to burstand release the ovum into the fallopian tube – the moment of ovulation.Throughout the menstrual cycle, a small amount of LH is produced, but during the middle of thecycle LH briefly and dramatically increases, and is known as LH surge. Elevated quantities ofluteinizing hormone that facilitate ovulation are detected by ovulation tests through anti-LHantibodies contained in the sensitive testing membrane. Ovulation tests thus allow you toaccurately predict when you will ovulate. A positive result on an ovulation test means that thewoman will most likely become fertile over the next three days – with peak fertility at 36 hoursfollowing the LH surge. 4/7
  • 5. Ovulation Test FormatsOvulation tests come in two formats, test strips and midstream tests. Both test formats areequally reliable.Test Strip: To use the ovulation test strip, you fill a container with urine and hold the test strip inthe container for several seconds. Midstream tests: To use the Midstream test, hold the test inyour stream of urine.With most home ovulation testing products, the reaction time of the test is five minutes. At fiveminutes, you can interpret the tests. All tests have a “control” color band (or color line) thatindicates whether the test is working or not. Also, the control band provides a color/intensitybaseline by which to interpret the “test” band results. The “test” color band indicates a positiveor negative result.A positive result (indicating an LH Surge) is indicated by a test band that is of equal or greaterintensity (equal or darker) than the control band. A negative result for the LH Surge is indicatedwhen the test band is of lesser intensity (lighter) than the control band or cannot be seen. Anegative result means the LH level of the urine sample is at or near its normal level and that theLH surge is not in progress. Remember, there is always some quantity of LH in your system, soa light color band in the test region is NOT an indicator of a positive result.Things to remember when using Ovulation TestsThe LH surge is very brief and in order to detect the LH surge, you need to test at the right timeof the month – and the right time of day. The best times to test are between 11am and 3pm and5pm and 10pm. If you want to make sure that you catch your LH surge, you may want to testtwice a day, once in the earlier time frame and the other in the later time frame. Please keep inmind that while you may have the initial surge of LH earlier in the day if testing via blood tests,you will not get a positive result on the ovulation test until 4-5 hours later when the surgeactually reaches your urine. Be sure to test at the same time each day.Once the LH surge has been detected, successful fertilization is most likely to take place one tothree days following the LH surge – with peak fertility at 36 hours post-LH surge.Susan asks… 5/7
  • 6. If ur preggers does the LH surge keep getting darker?I only ask cause my last pd was april 26th and I spotted some may 31st & june 1st, but I tookclear blue digital & the lh surge keeps getting darker everytime & yes imapeestickfreak so Itook it apart…but it says “not pregnant” maybe I tested to early for digital, cause I took cheapones & they say pos..”Don’t be rude thanks”Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:The digital tests do require a higher concentration of pregnancy hormone to be positive ( 50 –100 mIU I believe ). If you have taken a regular pregnancy test and read it within the 3 – 5minute time frame ( 10 minutes max ) – and there was a faint line there with some color, then Iwould say you are preg. Maybe calling a doctor to confim the home pee tests with a blood testwould calm the confusion?Ovulation hormones and pregnancy hormones are almost identical, so yes, after a certainconcentration of pregnancy hormones an ovulation test will turn a dark positive. I tested out thetheory myself, however the Answer Ovulation Strips weren’t turning up a dark positive untilabout the 5th – 6th weeks of pregnancy.Wishing you the best!Betty asks… 6/7
  • 7. Can I conceive on ovulation day? I know that it’s better to have intercourse as often as poss but I am having sperm donation and for one reason and another this month I can’t have my donation until the actual day I ovulate. Am I still likely to conceive? Also if my period last month was very late, and I am still using my average cycle to figure out ovulation, am I likely to have got dates wrong for ideal conception times? Please help me asap. Pregnancy Advisor’s answers: Your chances will be low. Your highest fertile day is the day of an lh surge (24-36 hours before ovulation). The next highest is the day before and day after (if you didn’t ovulate in the 24 hours time frame). The egg only lives for 24 hours after being ovulated and rapidly deteriorates after the first 12 hours. The sperm need to be waiting for the egg not the other way around to prevent missing the egg. It also takes awhile for the sperm to migrate through the cm, up the uterus (against contractions that occur in it) and through the tubes which have hair like tissue that is pushing them & the egg to the uterus. The cm after ovulation changes due to the rising levels of progesterone make by the remains of the follicular sac after ovulation. I will still try it if money isn’t an issue (if paying for donor) but don’t get your hopes up too much. Powered by Yahoo!
